Ariel Washington is a 10 year old girl who was recently diagnosed with Limbic Encephalitis, a very rare disease that attacks the brain. Only 12 children in the past 20 years in the entire world have been diagnosed with this disease. Ariel was a straignt A student that spoke fluent French, she now is lucky to remember things in 5 minutes and can not be left alone due to PICA (a condition where a person will eat anything).
The doctors at Children's Hospital feel that the only hope for Ariel is for her to see a specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota that has treated someone before with this condition. In order to send Ariel to the Mayo Clinic we need to raise a $5,000 deposit.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 by July 31st!! Show your support & help Ariel get to Mayo!!
